iOS 7.1 battery life the same or worse than before say iMore readers

A week ago we ran a reader poll asking about your iOS 7.1 battery life, and we've had some interesting results. A full week after the update came out, we'd all had a decent amount of time to discharge and recharge our iPhone and iPad batteries and get a better feel for whether or not anything had changed. Battery life differs from person to person, and in our sampling it looks as if the bad press on the issue may have had some standing.

What if the rumored iOS 8 Healthbook wasn't just for an iWatch but for an internet of health things?

One of the most persistent rumors for iOS 8 focuses on Healthbook, a Passbook-style, card-based "wallet" app that would collect all your fitness, nutrition, sleep, and medical data all in one place. These rumors have been tied to the iWatch as a way Apple could track more and better health-based information, but there's also been speculation that Apple might go broader.

What are the top 5 new features YOU want to see in iOS 8?

The iOS 8 rumors are running hot and heavy these days, what with everything from Healthbook to improved Maps with transit and indoor directions to a separate iTunes Radio app to TextEdit and Preview apps to inter-app communication, to — you get the idea. A lot of the excitement is because iOS 7 was such a major re-imagining of what a mobile operating system could and should be and iOS 7.1 gave us our first look at that all polished up. It was a herculean task by everyone at Apple but, once done, it opens the door on so many new and great possibilities. That's where you come in. What are the top 5 new features you want to see from Apple in iOS 8?

When the iPad was announced there was plenty of folks declaring it a flop even before it hit shelves because of their lack of understanding where, exactly the product fit in and how it would be used by those interested in even picking one up.
